“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”
 Oscar Wilde












MORE PRECIOUS THAN A GEM



"A wise woman who was traveling 
in the mountains found a precious stone 
in a stream.

The next day she met another traveler 
who was hungry, and the wise woman 
opened her bag to share her food. 


The hungry traveler saw the precious stone 
and asked the woman to give it to him. 
She did so without hesitation. 


The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough 
to give him security for a lifetime.


But a few days later he came back 
to return the stone to the wise woman. 


"I've been thinking," he said, 
"I know how valuable the stone is, 
but I give it back in the hope 
that you can give me something 
even more precious. 


Give me what you have within you 
that enabled you to give me the stone."

P.S:


The unconditional love 
you have for yourself and others...
the wisdom to accept reality.....
the strength and courage to overcome...
seemingly impossible challenges....
the peace within you....
the freedom to make choices
and live life on your terms.......
your willingness to give
and your readiness to receive......
your open minded approach to life....
your eagerness to learn and grow....
your assertiveness.....the joy you feel.....
your confidence in yourself....
your ability to let go of things
that no longer serve you......
your dreams....your sense of integrity.....
magnanimity....humility..creativity....
your unique gifts/talents...........
your sense of humour...
are some of the "infinitely precious things 
that cannot be taken from you.”
Isn't life absolutely amazing ???????
Namaste,
